Chris doesn't seem to have excellent pronounciation in other languages (like French tracks on Blue Guitars or his "danke" on a German gig which one wouldn't understand without knowing that it has to be "danke"), I tend to think that it still was "dziekuje"...Chris wrote: Hi all,
Well, the Polish version of a simple "thank you" is "dziekuje" (Polish spelling) and pronounced: "Jing-kuye", so nicely said, time and over again, by Borat!
But I think Chris actually said "Josephine, Josephine"....
I have to admit it, I was wrong; Chris indeed says "dziekuje" ("thank you" in Polish) towards the end of the first song, and repeats twice: "dziekuje, dziekuje" after "Josephine!" I don't know why I haven't, but I should have recognized this right a way. I have to apologize to all fans on this forum since I've tried to convince them otherwise.
Sorry about that.
Having said that, I'm very happy that Chris felt so good on stage in Warsaw. I wasn't aware of that because I've missed this concert (I wrote about it previously) due to a sudden indisposition.
Best regards to you all, especially to Elangelo in Moscow and the lady from France, Littlecouinie.
Did you mean Adrian Rea on drums? (drummer on "On the Beach" CD and probably earlier) or does he have to brothers who are drummers?Chris wrote:Thank you for uploading the "Chris Rea's mini concert" on Youtube.
I think they only pretended to perform "live" in the television studio (on the first program of the state-run Polish Television = TVP1) while, in fact, the three (3) songs have been played from the playback.
What's interesting is the band's composition. The sax player was Eric Seva with Robert Ahwai on the guitar, Marc Edwards on the piano, Sylvin Marc on the upright bass and Marc Rea (Chris' brother, "faster than light", on the drums.) I believe I read at the time that Chris came to Warsaw to promote his new CD, "The Blue Jukebox".
This is not related to CR, but just today (August 29) I read that Mark Knopfler will be coming to Warsaw - "soon" - to promote his "Kill To Get Crimson" CD! That's ahead of the local issue date on September 14 (according to our press.) Mark will also come to Poland next May 2 (in 2008) to play a concert at Warsaw's Torwar arena. Great news for all Knopfler's fans around here, I guess.
Best regards to you all,
yes I just wonder who Adrian Rea is thenlittlecouinie wrote:no if you have a lok to the video miniconcert tvp1 (polish tv )on youtube/littlecouinie at th e end there is the name of the musicians eric seva, marc rea, sylvin marc ,robert ahwai,
and the keyboard i don't remember the name
hey, and what about Adrian?Chris wrote:Come to think of it, a simple answer might just be: someone (at the TV studio) had confused the first name "Mike" with a "Mark" and wrote it down that way.
Therefore, we might be still dealing with the same person, the brother of Chris, Mike Rea, the drummer!
